With a swag of double platinum, platinum and Gold albums, ARIA awards, a number 1 single and being voted #1 in Triple J’s Hottest 100, Kram has now stepped out and into his much anticipated solo journey.
What is Kram‘s music like , we hear you ask ? …well exactly what you would imagine from this enigmatic front man who is all at once a : singer, drummer , prolific songwriter, entertainer, master of ceremonies – who has been trapped behind the drum kit for all these years finally let loose on the general public .
A veritable grab bag of your favourites tunes is what it is, fun, catchy, quirky, up – vibe positive tunes, thigh slappingly good stuff indeed !
This will be one of KRAM’s first solo shows with his new band so be one the fans to say they saw it first!
Sydney quartet THE JEZABELS have been gaining a fan base over the summer thanks to powerful performances at the Big Day Out, Festival Of The Sun, Pyramid Rock Festival and a national support tour for Canadian Twins Tegan and Sara.
They are throwing the surfboards on the roof and making a trip to the Quiksilver Pro Show as they release their debut EP, ‘The Man is Dead’ this month, off the back of rave reviews and high rotation spins on community radio for their debut single, the infectious, pop-soaked ‘Disco Biscuit Love’.
After a stellar year which saw the band win the Triple J Unearthed insigned band competition, NUMBERS RADIO are making their first appearance at the Quiksilver Pro Show.
High energy Rock n’ Roll at it’s freshest and most potent, their fast paced, thumping rock tunes are balanced with sing-along choruses and harmonies that transform the songs into anthems. There’s a rawness and a purity balanced with a tight and solid sound that’s not unfamiliar yet hard to pin down – It’s their own.
Slotting into the DJ stage is south Sydney hip hop artist KID MAC (Macario De Souza)
Kid Mac started out with hip hop duo 3Seven7, who wrote and recorded several tracks for the award winning Bra Boys documentary.
Also the director of the award winning feature, Macario has performed to sell out audiences at the X-Dance Film Festival in Utah and has spent much of the last year in the studio and writing, working with producers such as Jamie Holt from Sydney rock band The Camels
